NEWTON — McPherson High’s ninth-grade girls placed only three players in the scoring column Saturday in the championship game of the Newton Invitational, but that proved to be more than enough.
The Bullpups captured the tournament championship with a 43-32 victory over Bishop Carroll as defense again led the way.
Emma Yowell poured in 24 points for the Bullpups and Kamryn Collins scored 12. Emma Ellet was the only other MHS player who scored with seven.
MHS completes its season Tuesday at Rose Hill.
